Clare Elsom – A speedy hand

Don't over do it © Clare Elsom

I recently stumbled upon the work of Clare Elsom, a graduate from University College Falmouth and since her graduation she’s been part of the sea of talented illustrators that are scattered all over London. She’s represented by NB Illustration Agency and has done a lot of beautiful work for a nice assortment of clients.

It really appeals to me the unpretentiousness of her style and the surprising change of stroke thickness, as if her fountain pen suddenly got very excited and spat out more ink than it meant to. The language of her character is quite consistent and has a heart warming naïve feel to it. I wouldn’t mind seeing them moving in the near future!
